Subject: interesting footage, racist nararative
Travelogue footage of peoples in the south pacific islands. Meant to be entertaining not educational. Probably from the 30s? Good footage of relatively undisturbed cultures, food, dress, dancing, and yes, women. All described as savages of course. Pretty racist but worth it for the pics.

Subject: Now we know where the boil in the bag technology comes from
OK film about "women from other lands" but it's more of a travelogue with various trivia about women thrown in on occasion. We visit Samoa, New Zealand, Papua and other exotic places where lots of women are shirtless and realize "its a man's world" and are seen not doing anything in particular for the most part.
